    2.5" or 3.5" is fine with me....most important is relaibility and price.
    Came across advertisement the Seagate 160G for $199, not sure how good is it?

    3.5" HDD

    Spoke to the seagate distributor - of course says it is good. Price is very resonable. They are also the only one giving 5 yr warrenty. The 250GB is about $270, with casing. However, no firewire if you are using Mac.

    The others there are Maxtor, 250Gb is about $330.

    Iomega has several 250GB ones, ranging from $299 - $359. The $359 is a cool looking Mac-mini look alike. Also comes with good software. However, only 1 yr warranty. As I have been using Iomega - no probs. Only that they are more pricey than others, hopefully more reliable!

    2.5" HDD

    80 Gb about $210 + - have to look around. Seagate also have some 2.5" HDD. Understand that there is a shortage of 60 & 80 GB HDD, so the prices have gone up.

    Hope this helps.

    Cheers
